Jade Empire Free on Origin

Jade Empire Special Edition is now available for free on Origin Games as the newest entry in their "on the house" program (thanks GameInformer). Here's word on the martial arts action/adventure, which was first released in 2005:

When danger threatens, you travel across the world, from the harsh mountains of the Land of Howling Spirits to the lush gardens of the Imperial City.

In your adventures you face powerful human and supernatural foes, learn exotic and magical martial arts, and discover the darkest secrets of the world.

Only by mastering the greatest fighting styles and defeating the most powerful enemies will you earn your place as a master of martial arts in the world of Jade Empire.

Yeah, they changed it to Command and Conquer: Red Alert 2 + Yuri's Revenge.

Still showing that one for me as well (Red Alert 2 + YR has been free 'On The House' since mid September by the way). No Jade Empire to be seen anywhere (don't personally give a shit).

Well you gave enough of a shit to go looking for it and then post about it.


I got the game on Steam, dude. I only checked out of curiosity because of the reported issues.

Yet, you still cared enough to go look and post about it...and post about it again.


Keep poking that hornets nest, Krovven, I'm sure gold will fall out of it at some point... Pokestick

Not difficult to figure out that I was intentionally poking because his actions contradict his statement.
Much like I don't care what you have to say, I don't care if I'm irritating an idiot troll. It's just not a concern I have.

If I remember this game correctly, you could actually choose BOTH women at the end and nail them.

That's dirty

I remember thinking it was really amazing at the time. "Wow, they're really showing some courage in displaying relationships outside most peoples' comfort zone."

Years later, Western RPGs are increasingly judged by whether you can fuck all the characters or not and I want to throw all this shit in the garbage. Anime was a mistake.

Showing as $15 (lol) for me too. I already own it on GOG, so eh.


I quite enjoyed Jade Empire, even though it was terribly, terribly small. (world wise, level wise, etc. Of course, it had to run on the 640k of memory that the original Xbox had...) It had a pretty fun story, and still has the best "arena" style series of missions of any game ever. By the end of the arena series in JE you're fighting entire fucking crowds of critters.

They did a lot of work in making different styles and moves for the kung fu, it's just too bad that every single thing could be beaten by doing light kick - light kick - somersault repeat. (though I believe they said they fixed that for the special edition.)

Keep meaning to go replay it at some point, but eh. Maybe when I'm retired.

They probably pushed it up a little early, rolled it back, and will push it forward again in the next couple of days. Just keep an eye out, I imagine.
